(NEW YORK) — Major League Baseball will suspend New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez for violations of the Basic Agreement and its Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program on Monday, according to ESPN.
ESPN also reports Rodriguez will likely be suspended through the 2014 season.
The 38-year-old Rodriguez has yet to suit up for the Bronx Bombers this season due to off-season hip surgery.
During his career with the Seattle Mariners, Texas Rangers and the Yankees, the 14-time All-Star has batted .300 with 647 home runs, 1950 RBIs and 1,898 runs in 2,524 regular season games. He’s fifth on the all-time home runs list, 13 behind former San Francisco Giants outfielder Willie Mays.
Rodriguez captured his only World Series Championship in 2009 as a member of the Yankees.
